Wolverhampton Wanderers defender Matthew Doherty has been withdrawn from the Republic of Ireland squad for the upcoming internationals due to injury.
The 26-year-old took a nasty knock in the face [cheek] at Arsenal and met with a specialist yesterday to determine the extent of the problem. Although the precise details are yet to be revealed, the Football Association of Ireland [FAI] confirmed on Wednesday that Doherty will miss the friendly with Northern Ireland and the UEFA Nations League game in Denmark next week. Doherty received pelters at the Emirates on Sunday from Gunners fans - who believed he was playacting - following lengthy treatment late on with the score tied at 1-1. However, Doherty will now return to Compton Park and is considered an early doubt for the clash with Huddersfield Town at Molineux when the Premier League fixtures resume. Doherty has started every game this term, but if he does miss out, then Nuno Espírito Santo may look to Adama Traore who impressed from the bench last time out. Nov 14 - 8:22 AM
